Begin your long weekend or midweek break with a trip to attractions such as RRS Discovery, the ship which took Captain Scott on his remarkable voyage to Antarctica. Continue the sailing theme with a visit to HMS Frigate Unicorn, a preserved warship which was first launched in 1824 and is the sixth oldest ship in the world.
Other fantastic attractions in Dundee include Sensation, the city’s science centre which has unusual exhibits to interact with, and Mills Observatory, where you can see incredible images of the moon and stars at the UK’s only full-time observatory.
Enjoy a fantastic few hours in the shops of Dundee, which has two shopping centres, the Overgate and Wellgate, connected by a pedestranised street full of high street names and fabulous stores. There are also several retail parks, offering well-known names at big stores. The Gallagher Retail Park sits right beside the city centre and next to Dundee's brand new swimming pool.
Relax in one of the city’s many cafés and restaurants and pick a dish showcasing the region’s sumptuous produce such as meat or fresh seafood, and a dessert made with juicy local berries. After a delicious meal, take in a performance at one of the city’s venues, with films, music, comedy and theatre all available.
Dundee Rep is home to Scotland’s only full-time dramatic company so there’s a full programme of performance all year round. Take in a film at Dundee Contemporary Arts or simply head to one of the bars or charming pubs for a quiet drink to round off your perfect city break in Dundee.
